I began my Thanksgiving holiday by taking in a performance of Romeo and Juliet at the Folger Theater. The Folger is the perfect venue for seeing a Shakespeare play (I think the Bard would agree) if you’re ever in DC.
R&J itself was fabulous. I am now crushing on Michael Goldsmith, who played an emotionally-charged, awkward in-a-good-way Romeo, and in awe of Erin Weaver’s strong-willed, rebellious teenaged Juliet. All in all, a great performance.
